cranberry bogsPORTLAND, Ore.  — More frozen berries have been recalled over Hepatitis A fears.

Scenic Fruit Company in Oregon is voluntary recalling  61, 092 eight ounce bags of Woodstock Frozen Organic Pomegranate Kernels.

These products under the recall were shipped between February and May of 2013 and sent to distribution centers in a dozen states, including Washington State. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says no illnesses have been reported and there is no evidence that the organic pomegranate seeds imported from Turkey are contaminated.

Earlier this month, another Oregon-based company, Townsend Farms, recalled its Organic Antioxidant Blend that was sold in Costco stores across the country. Federal health officials linked the pomegranate seeds from Turkey to a Hepatitis A outbreak.

At least 122 people have been sickened, including 17 cases in Arizona, 62 in California and  25 in Colorado.
